Redistricting - Time to Provide Feedback on the New Texas Legislative District Maps!
Stephanie Swanson, LWVTX Board Member and Census & Redistricting Issue Chair
The good news is that our advocacy efforts have paid off! Because of our letter asking for public hearings, and because so many people showed up and demanded that they #ShowUsTheMaps, both Redistricting Chairs in the House and Senate have now committed to showing the public the maps. The next step in this advocacy process is to urge both Committees to allow public comment on the maps and to take the public's input seriously.
IMPORTANT! We will need your help to provide feedback to the Committees on the proposed maps once they have been posted. Both the House and Senate Redistricting Committees may start holding hearings as early as next week.
How to Participate
We will alert everyone as soon as hearing notices are posted and if and when maps are released. In the meantime:
Your comments can make a difference! We are empowering voters and defending democracy by providing testimony!
